Shadow Dances

Updated on October 28, 2012

Her shadow dances like a whisper of reality,

as she stands beneath the light.

cold hands

like steel

tearing down the walls

so none can perceive the hopes and dreams.

lost soul

so afraid,

Inside terror burns

now alone, cries inaudible screams

those dreams

of fame


all away.

All those lies, promises in the night


she weeps

pain is all she feels

now she lives with no will left to fight.

Still, her shadow dances like a whisper of reality

as she stands beneath the light.
